I'm going to start off by saying that yes a seemingly zombie apocalypse is ABSOLUTELY possible and plausible in a future time. Now before you cast me
off as being insane, hear me out.
Scientists have discovered a naturally occurring fungus that creates a zombie like effect in ants. Directing them to an area where the fungus can
spore and propagate. We have Mad cow disease which when it affects humans the results are markedly similar to zombie'sque symptoms. Pale skin, low
motor skills, mindless looks etc are all looks of a zombie.
The reason I feel that this is 100% plausible in a future time is that we have plenty of nutcase scientists that mess with biology and chemistry to
create weaponry capable destroying nervous systems, burning skin and internal organ shutdown. NOW in order for a person to become a "zombie" whatever
organism or chemical needs to alter the frontal lobe and block most neurological signals. With that their immune system, and body would eventually
become malnourished enough to resemble a zombie and act like one too. Without the cognitive functions of a normal brain who knows what the humans
will deteriorate into. BITING etc. The bacteria may very well manipulate the neurological signals to bite, spit, puke, cough etc just so it can
Oops Almost forgot the most important piece, what this thread is actually about.
I'd have to say a shotgun, sword, or grenades, flame thrower. Keep me far away and the only way to kill the disease is to make sure it doesn't
